Navy Issues Guidance for 2020 E-6, E-7, and E-8 Evaluations due to COVID-19

Recommended Posts

MILLINGTON, Tennessee – Guidance to address how advancement results from the delayed E-7, E-8, and E-9 selection boards will affect first class, chief, and senior chief petty officer evaluations is now available.

NAVADMIN 223/20 released Aug. 7 provides amplifying guidance for the 2020 E-6, E-7, and E-8 periodic evaluation cycles to address the delayed advancement results due to COVID-19.

“With all the upheaval caused by the COVID-19, it's critical to keep evaluations on track,” said Career Management Department Command Master Chief Bill Houlihan.  “This NAVADMIN allows for that while also addresses the concerns we’ve heard from the fleet.”

The NAVADMIN adjusts policies surrounding evaluations in order to relieve the administrative burden on commands, ensure accurate reporting for advancing sailors, and standardization across the Navy.  For E-6, E-7, and E-8 periodic evaluations, those selected to advance can expect to be assigned their original date of rank that will overlap with the usual reporting period.  

Reporting seniors are now directed to conduct their normal first class petty officer periodic evaluations after the release of the Active Duty E-7 advancement results, with the end of the reporting period remaining Nov. 15.  These evaluations must be submitted to Navy Personnel Command (NPC) no later than Dec. 15. 

“From a morale perspective, it’s significant,” said Houlihan.  “Very few dates on the Navy calendar are as commonly known as the end of the reporting period for each paygrade.  Keeping those dates, especially the E-6 date, is a must.”

Sailors selected for advancement to E-7 will receive an E-6 Promotion/Frocking evaluation dated Sept. 15.  This applies to Active, Full-Time Support, and Reserve Component Sailors frocked or advanced to E-7.

Reporting seniors shall conduct normal E-7 and E-8 periodic evaluations after the release of the Active Duty E-8 and E-9 advancement results, with the end of reporting period remaining 
Sept. 15.  These evaluations must be submitted to NPC no later than Oct. 15.

“This should serve as a reminder to our Sailors that they can trust the process,” added Houlihan.  “This year has caused a great number of disruptions for people, and it is the intent of NPC to ensure that the best possible chance for advancement is afforded to all Sailors.”

      A lawyer representing Navy Seals who do not want to be vaccinated against Covid-19 told a federal appeals court Monday that their lawsuit over a now-withdrawn vaccine mandate isn’t moot even though Congress passed legislation last December ordering the policy canceled. During arguments before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, attorney Heather Hacker said the service members still face the possibility of discipline over their refusal to get vaccinated and the government has not ruled out taking vaccination status into account when doling out future assignments.

      One of the questions a family member asked me: "Why is it always the Navy that is in the news when they talk about the military?" 😎 WASHINGTON — Navy divers were working to locate portions of the debris from the Chinese spy balloon that a U.S. fighter jet shot down six miles off the coast of South Carolina, defense officials said on Sunday. The recovery effort, which is expected to take days, began not long after debris from the balloon hit the water, a defense official said. He added that a Navy ship arrived on the scene soon after the balloon was shot down, and that other Navy and Coast Guard ships, which had been put on alert, were also sent to the scene.
